Caviar, moonrocks, sunrocks — what is the difference?
Infused flower is a general name for a number of similar products. Find out what are the differences between these terms:
Caviar — a weed product that has been well soaked in hash oil. It can sometimes have the kief covering, but that is optional.
Moonrocks and sunrocks — marijuana buds soaked in oil and always rolled in kief. These two products are very similar, though sunrocks is the new development. For its production, manufacturers use only the highest grade marijuana. As a result, there is a slight variation in potency: while moonrocks have about 50% THC, sunrocks might reach 60-80%.

Key 5 recommendations on smoking infused flower
Smoking moonrocks or caviar is a little different from traditional way of smoking. To get most of their potency and not to experience unpleasant side effects, it is recommended to use the following tips:
Prepare water in advance.
You are likely to experience a dry mouth feeling, so getting some water near you is a good idea. Besides, being so high, it is hard to go and get a drink.
Eat before smoking.
To endure a strong high, you need an energy boost. Smoking potent forms of marijuana on a hungry stomach is not recommended.
Do not make plans for the day.
You will hardly be able to feel fresh enough even to meet friends, not even mentioning work or business. If it is the first try, it is advised to plan it for the evening time so you could get back to normal until morning comes.
Do not use a grinder.
You do not want to lose any sticky mass on the grinder. Instead, use your fingers to break the infused flower apart.
Mix it with the regular weed.
It is common to use a combination of regular smoking marijuana with infused flower to get the potency boost and to enliven your experience.
If you have got too high and do not feel comfortable with it, there are methods that can help you get better. First thing, drink much water to rehydrate your body and possibly take a cool shower. Secondly, get some sleep — you will definitely feel much better the next day. And what is most important — remember that intoxication is more unpleasant than dangerous and everything you need to get back to normal is just live through this difficult period.
Though smoking infused flower is very popular among marijuana devotees, it can be more dangerous than traditional way of smoking.
The main hazard is at the same time its greatest benefit — potency. To produce caviar, moonrocks or sunrocks, manufacturers frequently use butane hash oil (BHO) — powerful extracts with high level of THC — the cannabinoid that is able to regulate the brain operation. There are three kinds of risks related to the use of BHO:
- Regular use of potent extracts is proved to result in negative health consequences and addiction. With regular marijuana, addiction does not come as quickly and withdrawal syndrome is not as severe as with BHO.
- The production of BHO involves using solvents which are not always fully evaporated. Solvent residuals in the final product might be extremely hazardous for smoker`s respiratory system.
- High THC levels lead to cognitive impairment and a memory decrease. It is connected with the fact that to produce its psychoactive effects, THC directly binds to CB1 chain of body receptors, which are responsible for human emotions, memory and cognitive functions.
How to make a DIY infused flower?
Making it in home conditions is exactly as easy as it seems to be. It comes in three steps:
Step 1. Prepare the weed. Selecting the marijuana flower for this purpose, make sure it is large and dense enough.
Step 2. Cover it with oil. To perform this aim, it is best if you use tweezers to keep the flower and brush to add the cannabis oil. You cannot just dip the flower into the oil or it will be overwet.
Step 3. Roll it in kief. Use tweezers to roll the flower in the grinded kief until it is fully coated. Leave the ready-made moonrocks to dry for about an hour.
Moonrocks are ready! Store them in a dry and cool place avoiding excessive moisture, heat and direct sunlight.
